Armored vehicles: a luxury for some, a necessity for others. Whatever the case, deciding on the perfect armored SUV might have just gotten a bit easier with the introduction of the new Inkas Sentry APC.

Inkas, out of Ontario, Canada, has been building armored vehicles for a number of years. If you hand them over your Mercedes G-Class or Cadillac Escalade, they’ll assure that it comes out safer than a cow at a vegan restaurant. But the Sentry APC is the armored SUV that should be on your radar.

Capable of withstanding 7.62×51 SC ammunition, 7.62×51 M80 NATO Ball ammunition, and tested to meet NIJ-STD-0108.01 Level III ballistic standards, it’s one of the safest vehicles money can buy. Designed specially for use in SWAT and military situations, the Sentry has already been deployed in a number of countries, including Africa, Latin America, and Asia.

“This machine is unique in terms of technical specifications, design, and assembly,” said Major General David Fraser, COO of Inkas. “We know how important it is to securely and comfortably transport the passengers within an APC in various challenging environments and have implemented the latest innovations to ensure this.”

Technically speaking, the APC is powered by a 6.7-liter diesel V8, capable of producing 362 horsepower. It also comes with a number of various new features, including a powerful acoustic hailing and warning device, a removable vehicle-mounted barrier, and a durable body frame with high ballistic protection level.

Any civilian looking to purchase one of these armored SUVs will have to go through some red tape first, depending on local policies and regulations. Even then, the starting price is a lofty $250,000 CAD (approx. $197,000 USD), going up from there depending on options.
